Well this is not great. The strike that was supposed to last 24 hours is continuing. So we are stuck in Paris and hotel space is limited because of the Rugby and also because of the strike…lots of people are stuck in Paris. All that aside, we had a good day today traversing all over the city. Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe…we took a double-decker open bus tour that went all over the place. We managed to get a train in but got caught coming home and had to grab a taxi. It was the first time we really used the French laungage. At the hostel I said, “Ici bien, si vous plait” and he said, “Ici bien?” and I said “Oui, merci.” I was proud of myself. But now I’m out of internet time.
